*Lucanus cervus* Linn. Un

In the Trustees' Catalogue four specimens are listed in the collection; only two stand under the label but these are two others in an 'overspill' drawer which are thought to have been on display in the old museum. Many of the specimens in Hunter's eighteenth century collection were utilised by Fabricius and other contemporary entomologists for describing new species.
